Yesterday Lakers Head Coach Mike D’Antoni said that he doubts Steve Nash will play again this season. Even if he doesn’t get back this year, Nash said himself that he would like to make a run at it next year:
“I want to come back for sure,” Nash told reporters on Monday.
Nash is 40, and has only appeared in 10 games this season because of a number of injuries. But he’s maintained that he wants to play next season. Maybe because the Lakers owe him $9.7 million.
The key to all this in my mind is that the Lakers owe him $9.7 million. I can’t tell someone to pass up that kind of money but we all know what time it is. Nash is no longer an effective NBA player.
He had a great run though.
